Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, Statue Unveiled

Former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, affectionately known as the Iron Lady, is being immortalized with an 8 foot (2.44m) statue of her in the British House of Commons.

Rightly so and a long time coming.

Lady Thatcher was a leader of strong principles. Once committed to a cause like true leaders such as former U.S. president Reagan and current president Bush, Lady Thatcher followed through. She ignored polls and did what was right. Where would the world be if not for her, Ronald Reagan, Lech Walesa, and former Pope John Paul's vocal confrontation of the evils of communism?

Margaret Thatcher is a role model for any person who wants to lead unlike some who would be U.S. president. Lady Thatcher stood for something and that is refreshing in comparison to a Clinton.
